About Carolyn Malachi
Songstress, social philanthropist and Grammy Nominated recording artist are just a few titles held by Carolyn Malachi. A Washington, DC native born of musical roots, Malachi grew into her musical talent in 2005. She has since used her authentic jazz sound for good by promoting the power of the arts to help push people "onward and upward": a mantra developed by the singer as a reminder to always turn adversity into opportunity.
JayArr is a reggae singer/songwriter born in Sierra Leone. JayArr has performed at sold-out venues in Sierra Leone, the UK and in the US. His debut album, "Born Sierra Leonean," has sold over 10,000 copies and his new album, "Here 2 Stay," was released to a sold out audience at Zanzibar, one of Washington DC's premier night clubs on the waterfront, in March 2009.
JayArr and eight other well-known Sierra Leonean artists from Freetown released an album with PeaceTones in 2009 called "PeaceTones Sierra Leone: Songs from Freetown." Ninety percent of profits from this album are dedicated to the JayArr foundation, whose mission is to provide computer training and training in the arts to children and the general public in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
